The Legend of Tarzan

The Legend of Tarzan ★★½

Did the world need a gritty reboot of Tarzan? Probably not, but for what it is, it's surprisingly okay. I hated this when I saw it during release, I was definitely too harsh on it back then, it's hardly amazing, but it's at least watchable. There's some cool ideas with the story action, it's just a shame that it's sometimes ruined by such weak CGI at times. Alexander Skarsgard also makes for a very uncharismatic and charmless Tarzan, but at least the performances of Margot Robbie, Samuel L Jackson and Christoph Waltz hold this together. Kinda wish we got a sequel now too. They're not connected, but this is at least far better and interesting than what Disney are doing with their live-action remakes.
